Need to figure out how much insulin to administer throughout the day and stick to those fluctuating doses over time? There’s now an app for that.
Patients who don’t use an insulin pump or mealtime insulin have to self-administer varying levels of insulin throughout the day—a process called insulin titration—based on changes in their blood sugar levels due to physical activity and food intake. According to Amalgam, more than 60% of basal insulin users are insufficiently titrated and about one-third of this patient group is completely unaware of the need to titrate their insulin at all.
The Amalgam Rx’s iSage Rx insulin titration app was launched in the US in 2017 and achieved clearance from the FDA and will soon be available in Europe. It aims to solve those issues by connecting to Bluetooth-equipped blood glucose meters and collecting blood glucose and insulin dose readings in one centralized location. The app also provides patients with behavioral support and educational information about titration to help them better understand the process and its potential effects as well as increase the chances of them adhering to their dosing regimen.
